Add some raspberry schnapps just for fun, and you’ll have the perfect dessert for a romantic Valentine’s Day meal.
This dessert is best when made the day before, which makes it a wonderful choice for entertaining. If you would rather not use liqueur, simply substitute water or raspberry juice for the schnapps.
Romantic Raspberry Fluff
Makes approximately 10 individual servings, or one 9-inch by 13-inch serving dish.
1 package (3 oz) raspberry gelatin
1/2 cup (or 2 “airline bottles” 50 ml) raspberry schnapps
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 large can evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries (if using frozen, do not thaw before use)
1 package graham crackers (7 double crackers), finely crushed
- In a medium bowl, combine the gelatin and raspberry schnapps. Stir well and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
- Add 1 ¼ cups boiling water. Stir for several minutes to completely dissolve the gelatin. Place bowl in the refrigerator until it is thickened, but not set.
- Pour the evaporated milk into a metal cake or pie pan and place it in the freezer just until ice begins to form around the edges.
- With an electric hand mixer, put the milk into a medium bowl and whip until it forms soft peaks. Add the sugar and whip until well combined. Fold raspberries into the whipped milk.
- Whip the gelatin briefly.
- Fold the whipped milk into the gelatin.
- If you are making individual desserts, sprinkle graham cracker crumbs in each dish. (Champagne or wine glasses make an elegant presentation.) Fill with raspberry mixture and sprinkle with additional crumbs.
- If you are making one 9-inch by 13-inch serving dish, sprinkle about 2/3 of the crumbs in the bottom of the dish. Cover with the raspberry fluff, and then sprinkle the remaining crumbs over the top.
- Best if chilled overnight, but several hours will do in a pinch.
Serve and enjoy! Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, wedding anniversary, date night in, or anytime, this Romantic Raspberry Fluff recipe will be sure to please.
